The 42,500 seat stadium has a 360-degree open concourse inside and outside the venue, steep seating angles providing unrivalled views of the field.
With the final piece of turf now laid and the last seats in place, the stadium has the best community and player facilities in the country.
The stadium will host three blockbuster events across five days when it opens tonight on Friday September 2, 2022 with the first match to be the NRL’s famous rivalry between the Sydney Roosters and South Sydney Rabbitohs. The Wallabies will then take on the reigning Rugby World Cup winners South Africa on Saturday, September 3, 2022 and to cap it all off the Commonwealth Bank Matildas will host Tokyo 2020 Olympic gold medal winners Canada on Tuesday, September 6, 2022 in an international friendly.
The CEO, NSW Taxi Council, Martin Rogers said, "The easier it is for people to travel to and from a venue, the more memorable their experience is. With a world class venue like Allianz Stadium, we look forward to helping people get from their couch to the stadium, and then from the stadium back to their couch”.
The events on 2 September 2022 - Friday night and 3 September 2022 - Saturday night are a sell out – with over 40,000 patrons expected on each night.
Taxis will be required at the completion of each event. Passengers will be waiting at the Moore Park end of Allianz Stadium – be sure to head to Allianz Stadium, Moore Park, as there will be plenty of fares waiting.
The Premier of NSW stated that “This world-class stadium is befitting of the nation’s only truly global city and will ensure NSW continues to attract the biggest stars in sport, music and entertainment.”
On Friday, 2 September, 2022 our female athletes will create Australian sporting history, with the NRL Telstra Women’s Premiership marking the first official sporting event at the new stadium between the Sydney Roosters and St George Illawarra Dragons, before the Sydney Roosters face their oldest and fiercest rivalry, the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Minister for Tourism Ben Franklin further added, “The new stadium will drive growth in the visitor economy and promote a strong cultural and sporting sector. Allianz Stadium will become the stage for some of the music world’s biggest stars, including pop sensation Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber and the legendary Sir Elton John. We’re expecting sellout after sellout in the opening months which will provide a significant boost to the NSW visitor economy.”
